That view has been seen before. It's looking south toward the bridge. You are seeing Lacrosse across the river.

We had a wet Zooey that must have gotten in a rain shower and was on the ledge.  She was sure doing some looking around before she left.  I was in the middle of this post earlier and had to go to the door and it took awhile.  It's not here, must have lost it.  I'll try again....

Always enjoy the barges.  One went past Red Wing too today.

I guess Zooey had company while she ate lunch about 12:50.

Zooey was up on the side (literally) of the bluff for a long time.  Newman was perched by the nest box watching her.  He finally flew up there, but when he landed on her she must have been straight up and down and he fell off............
